Actor headshots NYC. An often intimidating notion, and Lev goes above and beyond to make this a mirage. You’ll be amazed how he can turn seemingly mundane spots into cinematic portraitures. Most photographers have their go to spots. Lev wants every shot to be unique to you as an actor!

GORNPHOTO is a great company when you need Photos for headshots and acting and just a very professional company all around. I was looking for a photographer for my son’s headshots since he’s interested in commercials and acting and I searched around and nobody except for Mr. Gorn responded to me. He called me and I mentioned what we were looking for and he sent me his website link again and his accomplishments and I went over this with my son and his mom and we decided to use Mr. Gorn. It was a great experience and my son rarely smiles and Lev and Julianna brought out the best in him. They Made him feel at ease and comfortable and just a fun experience and my son had a lot of fun and he still tells me today, he enjoyed the whole experience. I can tell Mr. Gorn is a dedicated and diligent and hard working actor and photographer and his experience shows though his work. To give an example Lev and Julianna travelled to our community and did the photo shot for my son and again they brought out the best in him and made him feel at ease. I always say, you pay for what you get and I have no complaints but praise and thanks. The final photos have clarity and the amount of light shines through them and they show a great side of my son for the upcoming casting events. You definitely inspired my son from your advice. Again I will alwaysrecommend your photography company to everyone and you can add one of his photos to your website which that is fine with us. Again from me and Carol and William, we all had fun and thanks to Julianna and you Lev.

Lev made me feel comfortable from our first conversation. He came highly recommended by someone I respect greatly. Lev was easy going, professional and kind. Also of course a wonderful artist that worked with me to try to get the most ideal shots. He understands not only from a photographer viewpoint, but also from an actors perspective. He was generous with advice too which was appreciated! His makeup artist was also very good and professional.

Insightful and perceptive, Lev approaches photography like an art rather than a job. Takes time to get to get to know his clients so his photos capture who they are. Highly recommend.

I had a brand photo shoot with Lev for my new company and I can't even describe to you what an amazing experience it was!! I felt like a movie star, and with the photos he created, I look like one too! He took time to understand my brand identity and chose location, wardrobe and lighting that would truly represent me my company. I HIGHLY recommend GORNPHOTO to anyone who is looking to up their game and standout amongst all the people in their industries and fields. I used the photos on my website, for marketing material, social media platforms, email signature- pretty much every platform and document that requires a photo. The pics came out so good that I've had website inquiries (on my company website) about where I got my photos done and if I don't mind sharing the info.

Very professional and insightful. Not everyone can shoot professional photos, it requires a sense beyond what is seen through the eye piece. Lev has this ability and he truly creates magic.Pricing is extremely competitive for the amount time and passion he puts into each session.

I would unquestionably go back to Lev Gorn when I need updated headshots. His easy manner and expertise enabled me to be at my best during the session, and even though I usually hate myself in photographs, I was very pleased with my headshots and delighted to submit them to jobs. I've been getting work and attention, and having great headshots has boosted my confidence tremendously. Thank you, Lev.

Lev is absolutely fantastic! I’m a professor that needed professional headshots to use online. So I searched the internet for photographers and found so many in midtown it was overwhelming. When I saw Lev’s samples online, his talent was immediately clear. You could just see there was a natural inviting nature to the photos he took. Perfect for a website or online profile where a professional headshot is needed to draw people in. After having gotten my headshots, I was blown away. The shots he got are more than I ever could have imagined. Truly an artist. He just knows how to capture your personality and can achieve a variety of different looks depending on the context of what you’re going for. I would absolutely without a doubt go back again and recommend to anyone looking for professional headshots. You simply can’t go wrong. Lev is the best!

I was very pleased with my professional headshots from GornPhoto. I don’t love the process of getting my photo taken because I blink a lot, but I told Lev this at the start and he made sure to put me at ease, make me laugh, and actually produced some great photos with my eyes open! I also had some scheduling difficulties and Lev was very patient and made sure to stick with me so we could get the photos done. I appreciated his professionalism and ease of communication throughout.

My law firm hired Lev to take our headshots. I was told ahead of time by a coworker that Lev is great and it is true! He made the process easy and comfortable and I was happy with the pictures. Lev is very professional and clearly knows what he is doing. He gave me clear instructions on making small adjustments, and I ended up with a lot of good options. It was hard to choose a favorite! Given the few times I’ve had to get headshots taken, this has definitely been the best experience I have had.

I found Lev through a post on LinkedIn by a former colleague, and I loved the quality I saw. However, since my colleague is in Atlanta, I did not realize he was working out of NYC. So... even though his home base is NYC and I am based in Atlanta, I concluded that I liked his work more than others I had seen locally... I decided I would go to NYC to get my professional photos. I'm pleased with the results and recommend to anyone looking for quality photography with a great photographer that is easy to work with to contact Lev.

Simply put, Lev Gorn is a rockstar. Having been an actor for years, these are the best headshots I’ve ever gotten. Himself a working actor, Lev has a unique eye when it comes to what Casting & producers need. Kind, instinctive, with a detailed “prep”… our session went smoothly. Honestly, I went into this photo shoot with a “pandemic brain”, and left excited for what the future holds. I study my craft & network with CDs, but Lev Gorn‘s photos will open many more doors. It’s very exciting! Run to him people. Lev is the BEST headshot photographer in New York City!

Would absolutely recommend working with Lev if you’re looking for a headshot photographer in NYC! Look no further. Lev was extremely professional from planning the shoot all the way through to the end. We were required to have our shots taken outside and Lev was extremely accommodating in rescheduling due to weather and schedule challenges. During the shoot he was super engaging and made sure my awkwardness in front of the camera didn’t come through at all. Schedule your shoot with him ASAP!

A family portrait is a photographic representation of your family’s current relationships and dynamics. It captures the personalities, emotions, and interactions between members of your family at a particular moment in time. Family portraits provide an opportunity to document your family’s progress throughout the years, as well as capture the ‘now’ before it fades away.

Family portraits give families a physical and lasting representation of their family. They can be as informal or formal as desired, depending on the style you choose for your shoot. Professional photographers will help you to create an atmosphere where everyone feels relaxed and comfortable so that the final result is something that truly reflects the essence of your family. Whether it be a traditional style or something more creative, family portraits will make for treasured keepsakes you can look back on and smile.

It’s no secret that our family is of utmost importance to us, so why not take the time to freeze this precious moment in time? A family portrait is an investment worth making. It will be a reminder to generations of what your family means to you and the special bond that exists between all of its members.

When deciding what to wear for family portraits, remember that the focus should be on you and your loved ones, not what you’re wearing. Start by choosing an outfit that reflects your personality and style, but also coordinates with the rest of the family. Neutral colors like navy, khaki, gray, and white tend to look best in family photos. To add a bit of color and personality to your look, choose an accessory like a scarf or statement necklace.

For clothing, avoid anything too distracting with busy patterns, logos, or characters. Also steer clear of bright colors that might draw attention away from the people in the photo. Be sure to plan for different weather conditions, as outdoor family photos can be unpredictable. Be prepared with a jacket, umbrella, or other layers if needed. Above all else, make sure everyone is comfortable and feeling confident in their clothing choices for the best results!

When you’re ready to take the perfect family photo, try to make sure that everyone is dressed in a coordinated but not matchy-matchy style. If your family has multiple generations represented, think about wearing coordinating colors and similar tones for a unified look. The goal should be to let each individual personality shine through while still creating a cohesive family portrait. Have fun with it and you’ll end up with an amazing photo that will be cherished for years to come!

Don’t forget to bring along any sentimental items or props that will make the photo even more meaningful! With a bit of planning and attention to detail, you’ll be sure to capture a beautiful family moment in time.

When posing for a family portrait, it is important to keep the overall look in mind. It’s best if everyone in the photo looks happy and connected. Start by having each person standing close together but facing forward, with their arms at their sides or clasped in front of them. For larger groups, you can create a triangle shape with the tallest family members standing at the back and the shortest at the front. Another way to make sure everyone looks good is to have them lean into one another slightly, creating a subtle connection between them.

To add some variety, you can ask each person in your group to put their hand on someone else’s shoulder or link arms. Doing this gives the photo a sense of unity and closeness. You can also have different people look in various directions or at each other for a natural, candid feel. To make sure everyone looks their best, remind them to keep their backs straight and shoulders relaxed. Finally, ask everyone to smile as wide as possible for a beautiful family portrait!

When it comes to getting professional family portraits taken, location is everything. There are a number of great places that can make for perfect backdrops, depending on the style you’re going for.

If you want something classic and timeless, head outdoors to a park or beach. These locations offer natural lighting and scenic background that will bring out the best in your family photos. For a more urban feel, consider heading to the city and finding an alleyway or bridge with graffiti and iconic architecture. This will create a unique atmosphere that will make your pictures stand out.

For something with a bit of whimsy, head to a botanical garden or arboretum. These locations typically have lush gardens and pathways that will add a little bit of magic to your images. If you’re looking for something truly unique, consider visiting an abandoned building or factory; the decaying walls and rustic charm can make for some incredible shots.

No matter where you choose to take your family photos, the important thing is that you’re comfortable in your setting and the location reflects your personality. With a bit of creativity, you can find the perfect place to capture some lasting memories.

Family portraits can range from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars, depending on the photographer, the quality of the photographs, and whether you purchase digital files or prints. The cost for a family portrait session can include travel fees if you’re not shooting in-studio, hair and makeup services, and any additional digital files or prints you might want.

When considering the cost of a family portrait, it’s important to remember that you are investing in a lasting memory. Good photography captures moments in time that can be cherished for years to come. Professional photographers take pride in creating works of art through their photographs, and this can be reflected in the cost. Be sure to do some research on different photographers and their pricing before deciding who to go with for your family portrait. Additionally, do not look for discounts. Look for the best photographer who can create unforgettable, timeless photos. That is worth its weight in gold.

It’s a good idea to set a budget for your family portrait before you start shopping around. You may find that the photographer who offers the best deal isn’t the right fit for your family. While price is an important factor, making sure that you and your family are comfortable with the photographer is just as important. It’s better to spend a more money on the right photographer, rather than just settling for the cheapest option. Finally, consider what you will do with your photos once they are taken. If you plan to print them, the cost of prints can add up quickly. Digital files are often available at an additional fee and may be the best option to ensure you are able to enjoy your photos for years to come. Taking all of these factors into consideration will help make sure that your family portrait is a memory to cherish for a lifetime.

Ultimately, the cost of a family portrait in NYC depends on a variety of different factors and the prices can vary greatly from one photographer to another. Do your research and make sure the photographer is a good fit for you, and set a budget before choosing a package that best fits your needs. This investment will provide priceless memories that can be enjoyed now, and by generations to come.

The Importance of Family Portraits

You’ve definitely considered professional family photos and perhaps entertained fantasies of posing with your loved ones for one. Below are three convincing reasons why you should prioritize family portrait photos. 

  • Reliving Memories

Portraits or family photos can transport you back to a certain time. Not just to recall how you appeared but also precisely what you experienced at that time. We travel in time thanks to them. They make for wonderful memories.

They contribute to our heritage as well. It’s possible that grandkids and great-grandkids will one day request to see family photos, and wouldn’t it be terrible if there weren’t many or any for them to see? The family reunites over the photos as they reflect on their life together.

  • Life Happens 

Despite our desire to deny it, family dynamics can alter abruptly, and your nearest and dearest ones might pass away without saying goodbye. There isn’t any justification for passing up the chance to document family moments. You rarely know when you’ll get the final opportunity to take a family portrait.

When someone important to us kicks the bucket, many of us hunt for family portraits, and it seems logical that we would turn to them to make us recall. These images will make us chuckle and support us in adjusting to the shift of a loved one, no more being close by.

  • To Document Growth 

Our kids mature far too quickly! Then they begin raising their children a few years after grabbing their possessions and leaving home. We spend so much time focusing on creating our futures that we frequently forget about our past experiences.

When kids are smaller, taking a family photo every year is a beautiful way to record the growth each member of the household is experiencing. As kids become older, they establish their life and leave home.

The times when the household lived close to one another, a few kilometers apart, are long forgotten. Hiring an experienced photographer to capture family photos lets you make the most of your time together. This way, you will keep in mind the lovely times you two shared. 

Guide to Family Portraits

Family portrait photography comes with a lot of responsibility and can be difficult for the photographer. Knowing a few tricks can make every family picture shoot amusing and simple since a unique family portrait show true feelings. 

What to Wear

In family portraiture, deciding what outfit to put on is half the fight of family portrait ideas won. There are several choices for pattern, texture, and color. There are occasions when it’s best to avoid having your attire mismatched. 

In no way do you want there to be a section of your picture that serves as a visual distraction. Distractions detract from and weaken the focus on the real family in the picture. Also, some clothing pieces can change the shot’s moiré.

Indoors or outside

Whether you take indoor or outdoor family portraits depends entirely on the kind of pictures you desire. An in-home photographic session can be the best option if you desire a cozy and welcoming family setting.

If you have an active family, you should take studio family portraits outside so the photographer can get everyone in full swing.

How to Pose

Family portraits are a cherished tradition in many families. They’re a chance to capture the happiness and love of your loved ones in a single, memorable image. But taking good family portraits isn’t easy ― it takes some skill and knowledge to get the perfect shot. We advise you to take a close look at some of the most popular family portrait poses as indicated below if you want to make your photos one always to remember:

  • Standing
  • Seated
  • Side by Side
  • Turn Around

You may take stunning family photographs that would last for generations to come by adopting these positions.
